Two comments on Adobe Reader 7: 1)Original version of Adobe Reader 7 caused conflicts with AVG anti-virus 7, (Both were released at same time -December 2004, as I recall) and greatly complicated and enlarged Adobe Reader also...
2)Adobe "Open Type" fonts and MS "TrueType fonts seem to be converging in features, quality and interchangability.
Newest versions of both fonts are "Open", i.e. "filled", as I understand it.
On the subject of reports, if you are printing direct from UFT, you may indeed be seeing slightly different fonts on the old UFT Report Writer. That application was designed for older "Single Byte" TrueType fonts from the Win 3.1, Word 2-6 16 bit era. But the newer Unicode fonts should contain a subset of "Windows Western" code page 1252 single byte (first 256) characters.
As to the change in wording in some reports, Bob and Myrnice and Ruth probably have the answer for that one. Good luck, John
